we take you to hong kong china claiming demonstrators are beginning to show, quote, signs of terrorism and warns the us to stay out of it, what should or shouldn't we do? calls mounting to make the probe into registered sex offender jeffrey epstein's death public and do it soon. there are brand-new claims he used a bedsheet to hang himself in a new york jail cell where he was awaiting trial on new 6 trafficking charges and more about those who were supposed to be keeping watch that night. here's the latest from new york. >> as we await the final results of his autopsy typically did sunday, william barr slammed the metropolitan correctional center in manhattan, new york where epstein was found dead after an apparent suicide. >> i was appalled, the whole department was and angry to learn of the mcc's failure to
adequately secure this prisoner. we are learning of serious irregularities at this facility. >> reporter: fox news who learned he was not on suicide watch at the time of his death despite the fact that he was temporarily put on suicide watch after he was reportedly found in his cell two weeks ago. he was not physically checked on for several hours leading up to his death even though he should have been checked on every 30 minutes according to mcc's normal operations. case was my with the operation says he did not have a soulmate at the time of his death which this was characterized as unusual. the union representing the two guards on duty says one of the guards worked 80 hours a week. they blame the bureau of prisons and the trump administration for a time all -- all-time low staffing leading to overworked
guards, quote, we have been sounding the alarm for years about the hiring freezes, underfunding and how understaffed our facilities have been because of the policies of this administration. federal prison consultant says inmates are really left on suicide watch for more than a week. >> once you get out of that answer in a special housing unit you cannot stop an inmate from committing suicide. now policy will prevent that whatsoever. >> reporter: is the department of justice conducted their investigations conspiracy theories have flooded the internet including one unfounded theory retweeted by donald trump that blamed the clintons for epstein's death. kellyanne conway defendant the two. >> attorney general william barr said epstein's criminal case will continue against anyone complicit with the alleged sex trafficking network saying, quote, any co-conspirators should not rest easy and fox
news can confirm the fbi is that epstein's mentioned on his private island at the us virgin islands. >> the public outcry over epstein's death is sparking a heated debate. the wall street journal editorial board weighing in writing, quote, this kind of fiasco is why so many americans mistrust government. let's discuss it with robert george, great to have you with us tonight. >> wonderful to be on your show. >> you had a tweet that caught my eye this weekend talking how open this is got to be, how transparent this is got to be to the extent it can be because americans are losing their ability to trust anything connected with the government. >> it is true and not just the government but the military, religious organizations, our courts. we plus trust is the people in public institutions and that does grave harm to the republic especially in a democracy.
it's very important for people to trust our institutions. the reason we as americans lost trust in our institutions is the people who run our institutions have proven untrustworthy so we have to demand accountability, we have to demand competence, we have to demand transparency beginning with this inquiry into what happened in the case of jeffrey epstein. >> some numbers, the survey about trust in government, they asked all kinds of questions about americans, how they trust the federal government and how they feel about each other in very high numbers express a lot of skepticism people have about having confidence in their fellow man and in the federal government. any ideas how we turn those numbers around? >> we need to start listening to each other, talking to each other, engaging each other as fellow citizens and not as enemies. there's a terrible problem with demonizing anyone who disagrees with us. we refer to people who disagree with us as bigots or haters or
communists or evildoers. it is a democracy. we have circumstances of political freedom. where there is freedom of thought and freedom of speech people are going to reach different opinions. doesn't mean we should hate each other. we feminize each other or vilify each other, we need to listen to each other, talk with each other, yes, disagree, disagree strongly and fight for what you believe in but do not demonize. this demonization that is going on a citizen against citizen, this mistrust we have not only in government and other institutions but in each other will be the undoing of this republic unless we stop it. >> further from that wall street journal piece they said this, the just by apparent suicide, a
politically connected financier couldn't have been scripted better to undermine trust in law enforcement and the present legal system. you think there's an opportunity within the epstein case and the steps we take now when it comes to having this conversation about people viewed as powerful and delete and whether we as average americans can get straight answers about what happened? >> i hope some good can come out of this. a couple things. one thing is americans can become more cognizant of just how severe the problem of sex trafficking and especially sex trafficking of young women, of girls, even of boys is in this country. it is a terrible plague, terrible evil and we look the other way. i've been involved in the fight against sex trafficking since the 1990s and i've come to understand and to know how extensive it is. we got to do something about it. the second good that can come out and i'm looking right at attorney general bar is a competent, transparent explanation that gets to the bottom of this, when the public
and have trust in. would go far toward restoring trust in institutions, it would show for ones that we can trust the government to investigate something that went wrong on his watch and expose who the wrongdoers are, have accountability, have transparency. we are not to have many more shots in this. overtime trust has eroded massively in our institutions, we are nowhere like the trust institutions 1950s or 60s. it is a chance not to be missed which i can't emphasize how crucial it is and the ball is in william barr's court by conducting a competent, transparent investigation by getting to the bottom of this, showing the american people the government can investigate its own mistakes and wrongdoing will go far toward restoring trust. shannon: thank you for your time.
counting down to 2020 it is a tradition, the iowa state fair tracking presidential levels looking to sway key early voters and also interesting festival food. kristin fisher is live where they have been selling their ideas in des moines. >> reporter: 21 democratic candidates were at the iowa state fair over the weekend, senator kamala harris and others before and had the biggest crowds so far for their speeches and surging latest polls in this state but we decided to take our very own unofficial poll to see which candidates fair goers like best. >> kamala harris and andrew yang, andrew yang, nobody knew who he was a few months ago. is really surging now. what do you like about him? >> is very personable, i think, very honest. >> if you like. >> donald trump. we don't talk about it. >> no conversation at all. i think elizabeth warren is
pretty good. kamala harris is great. i like tulsi gabbard, some of the stuff she said. i like a
fresh new look at things. >> somebody like joe biden is not a fresh new look. >> we need to get away from the old white men in the white house. >> how do you feel about that? >> the opposite. >> i like them all. anybody but trump. i to say being an old white guy but it is the old white guys and ladies who are afraid of losing power and worried about the brown skinned people and black skinned people and think they will be the new majority of they don't want to lose the power. >> a deal like? >> none of them. i am a trump supporter and that is who i cast my kernel for. >> it could be the biggest
threat to donald trump? >> they are saying joe biden but i don't think
he can take trump. >> tomorrow mayor pete buttigieg is going to be here and everybody in the court is wondering what kind he will feed on camera. you were wondering what on earth vegan cory booker was going to we didn't find at the state fair that would work with his diet. he was able to find something, he ate some fried pickles and fried peanut butter and jelly. there really is something for everybody at the iowa state fair. >> that sounds amazing if he could bring it back for us, i will pay you back.

trees gallagher on the case tonight. >> the false narrative in the michael brown shooting 5 years ago that led to the mass right in ferguson, missouri and two of the top democratic presidential candidates are reiterating the same narrative. kamala harris saying michael brown's murder forever changed ferguson and america come his tragic death sparked the desperately needed conversation and nationwide movement. elizabeth warren followed with this, quote, 5 years ago michael brown was murdered by a white police officer in ferguson, missouri, michael was unarmed yet he was shot 6 times but the statements are not true. michael brown was not murdered, two investigations including one by the obama department of justice found was brown who attacked ferguson police officer derek wilson and it was brown who continued charging at wilson even while being shot several times, the doj report says brown
was not trying to surrender meaning hands up don't shoot, the national rallying cry claiming brown was shot in cold blood was thoroughly debunked, neither harris nor warren have corrected their false statements and that is likely because the statements of largely gone unchallenged. then there's democratic senator and presidential candidate cory booker who said this. >> we lost the state of michigan because everybody from republicans to russians were targeting the suppression of african-american voters. >> except the washington post, not exactly friendly to the president gave booker's comments four pinocchios. finally there is joe biden's latest campaign mistake concerning gun control and the shooting of marjorie stoneman douglas high school. >> i watched what happened to those kids from parkland, they came to see me when i was vice president, some you covered. >> the shooting was in 2017.
mike pence was vice president and democrats tend to give biden a pass on his gaffes you will notice the president not as magnanimous. shannon: thank you very much. as trace mentioned the 2016 doj reporting to the shooting death of michael brown said, quote, there's no credible evidence that wilson willfully shot brown as he was attending to surrender or was otherwise not posing a threat. let's discuss the fact checking with fox news contributor mark peterson, welcome to you both. from "national review" on this, the publication of a false accusation of a crime like murder is libelous under american law. harris and warren should correct and retract their false statements, there is no excuse for their inflammatory lies in fact they know better. >> is about who worked in law enforcement i have to say where
we are now there isn't any space especially the democratic primary to take a position on issues like this where they used to be. it used to be you could say i support law enforcement and i support accountability. if you say that it strikes me you are going too far to one side, that is problematic not just for the democratic party but as a country. >> not just nuance but truth. they both said in great detail that michael brown was murdered. he was not murdered. that's not a mistake, that is a lie but willful knowing falsehood. completely debunked. by the obama justice department the washington post factor contends that don't shoot gave it for pinocchio's, he acted out of self-defense and was justified in killing michael brown and it is not innocent because kamala harris is a former prosecutor, she should know better and keep in mind the
police officer in this case his life has been ruined. he was forced to resign without severance, had to go into seclusion, he gets death threats, his life is been ruined and these people are taking advantage of the suffering of a law enforcement officer who risked his life to protect his community to advance in the democratic primary, shameful. shannon: based on outside investigation by the obama justice department he was cleared but that doesn't matter in this conversation. >> it should matter, truth should matter. in this day of politics on all sides there is lack of truth but you are playing with somebody's life, a person whose life has been ruined and to spread it 5 years later when they both know better is wrong. >> i don't know which is worse, talking about senator warren that she still believes this or that she knows it is false and says that anyway is why the officers raised an issue, not even the justice department concluded there was a murder, do you think this is just primary
land? where we talk about senator harris, she was a prosecutor, she was the attorney general and is running for enforcement actions as if being tough on crime is negative in this primary. >> it is. when she first got into the presidential race there were comments that she was too tough and that would not play well at the debate and there has been a shift within the democratic base. i don't think those reflect the democratic electorate in general. i still believe half the democratic primary voters identify as conservative or moderate. general election voters don't see it this way but just like 2016 when you saw what on the republican side moderate didn't play out on the democratic side, don't know if it will play out but there's a move toward specific respective corners. whether it plays out i don't know. shannon: i went on a fact checking page of the washington post, not a right wing publication and maybe your corner.
of course they fact checked the president all the time but they fact checks calling out almost every democratic contender too, equal opportunity enforcement on calling people's bluff. >> is a long list of democratic pinocchios on that page but the biggest lie which almost every democratic candidate has subscribed to is that we can have socialism, free healthcare, free college, for universal income, medicare for all, green new deal and the rich are going to pay for it. the whole premise of the democratic presidential campaign is based on a lie. shannon: great to have you both. a new video next. treats all main types of chronic hep c. vo: whatever your type, ask your doctor if epclusa is your kind of cure. woman 2: i had the common type. man 2: mine was rare. vo: epclusa has a 98% overall cure rate. man 3: i just found out about my hepatitis c. woman 3: i knew for years. vo: epclusa is only one pill, once a day, taken with or without food for 12 weeks. vo: before starting epclusa, your doctor will test
if you have had hepatitis b, which may flare up, and could cause serious liver problems during and after treatment. vo: tell your doctor if you have had hepatitis b, other liver or kidney problems, hiv, or other medical conditions... vo: ...and all medicines you take, including herbal supplements. vo: taking amiodarone with epclusa may cause a serious slowing of your heart rate. vo: common side effects include headache and tiredness. vo: ask your doctor today, if epclusa is your kind of cure. that's why united rentals is combining equipment, data, safety and expertise to help your worksite perform better. united rentals.

let's discuss this with michael pillsbury, director of the hudson institute center for chinese strategy, good to have you with us. i want to read something, but the chinese foreign ministry said i need to emphasize a plaintiff, hong kong is pro-china and its affairs are china's internal affairs, we urge the us to stop interfering in chinese internal affairs. >> not quite true. hong kong was a british colony in the petition chinese push for 10 years on a joint declaration in which china made some concessions so yes hong kong is part of china to move the sovereignty of china but those concessions beijing made were filed with the united nations as a treaty in one of the key points is an independent judiciary, high degree of autonomy and other language that is more difficult to interpret
but they agreed hong kong rules in a more independent way with the kind of democratic election that arrested china. that is what is at stake, some of this is watched in mainland china and we are thinking if they can administrate why can't we? >> clearly that is the dilemma. we talked about how these people, there was a piece in the wall street journal about one of the young men, they want democracy. they see the rest of the world but it is not what they have as an option long-term. depending on how this goes. >> there is room to be interpreted and there is a political party in hong kong that says we deserve independence, they don't use the word independence but they are doing a play on words, this phrase high degree of autonomy. was going to interpret that and to some degree the judges in
hong kong where british white wigs, that is not china. what china is doing as they don't have a good large communist party so they target to control the place but what they are trying to do is essentially say this is all up to carry lamb so when nancy pelosi quite smart where thinks is carry lamb, sort of elected leader she should meet with the demonstrators, that's a very good idea but that is how tiananmen started, the government started to go down negotiating with students and the students got more radical and they had the hunger strike, began to behave very arrogantly as though the leader of china coming to see them was junior to them. i don't know what the meeting would be like that nancy pelosi is calling for but sounds like
donald trump has a lower approach, that this is china's problem, he wants xi to handle it well but the foreign ministry spokesman is talking about terrorism and counterrevolution in violent crimes, this is not a good trend. >> we will continue to watch it because we can expect more protests later today. >> 80,000 american citizens are there, 1000 companies have their headquarters there so we have mistaken this ourselves and they are accusing us of fermenting all this, that is the least false allegation out of china. shannon: attention is directed down at some point and we will see how that happens. time for where in the world. there is speculation the mysterious explosion in northern russia that left at least 5 people dead and unleashed a radiation spike may have involved a secret new nuclear
powered cruise missile. /your vladimir putin said the weapon would render nato's american-led missile defense systems useless. donald from tweeting the russian explosion has people worried about the air quality around the facility and far beyond. not good. norwegian authorities say the suspected gunman in an attempted terrorist attack on and on oslo mosque and separate killing of his teenage stepsister was inspired by this month's el paso texas shooting and the target of two mosques in new zealand was the suspect was ordered held for four weeks, that will be in kentucky. in a trumpet initiative to make sure immigrants pull their own weight is facing backlash from critics who call it cool. >> i do not think we are ready to take anything off the statue of liberty. who's dog is this?
it's my special friend, antonio. his luxurious fur calms my nerves when i'm worried about moving into our new apartment. why don't we just ask geico for help with renters insurance? i didn't know geico helps with renters insurance. yeah, and we could save a bunch too. antonio! fetch computer! antonio? i'll get it. get to know geico and see how much you could save on renters insurance.
can take care of themselves minos becoming dependent on government assistance but critics say it is designed to send one message, you are not welcome in this country. we talk about it with a host of the aggressive progressive and stephanie hamel of the daily caller. welcome to you both. the national immigration law center tweets the trump administration finalized its public charge will, a race motivated wealth test on immigrant families seeking a healthy stable future in the us. if this goes into effect it would have a devastating impact on millions. we will fight back, stating for updates, sounds like this will end up as every other immigration policy does which is in court probably the ninth circuit. >> absolutely. we are already hearing they want to challenge this and i'm
surprised by the outrage, people are upset immigrants in this country should be self-sufficient, that they should be able to make a living in this country and not depend on government programs, why should the american taxpayer foot the bill for people that are coming here is a want to become citizens and receive visas. it makes sense and if you look at 9096 there was a bipartisan bill signed by congress signed by bill clinton, no one cared then and today because it is a trump administration effort it has become race and cruelty and all these other things when it just makes sense. shannon: the washington examiner says 63% of noncitizens on welfare, in december cringing the latest data from 2014 said 63% of noncitizens are using welfare programs and it grows to 70% for those who are here 10 years or more confirming another concern that was referenced happen to well for they don't get off of it. >> they are including a lot of things like school lunches and other things in that program. i look at this and say to myself my grandparents when they were leaving europe during world war
ii had private health insurance which the policy calls for, a good credit score, with the president's grandfather have qualified under this plan? who qualifies under this plan? display no one qualifies because the president doesn't just want to stop illegal immigration, he wants to stop legal immigration. >> no one qualifies -- we are not going to take anything off the statute? we should tear the state to down if we have this policy because it is against american values, the most un-american thing this president has done. >> don't understand how it is un-american to ask people to support themselves. if you look at these policies, this is something democrats once supported. this isn't just a trumpet thing. the last polling i saw some 70% of americans agreed immigrants should be self-sufficient. decision to trump issue.
>> they should and most of them are at the statistic -- >> what is the problem, you said nobody would qualify but if that is the case and people come here and make a life for themselves and make a way for themselves why should this policy be a problem for most immigrants. >> the policy says they have to have good credit and private insurance. who is fleeing a war zone with good credit and private insurance? most of the world doesn't even have private insurance, that's mostly an american thing because our health insurance system is broken. what the president's policy is is to limit immigration completely to wealthy people who can afford to come to the united states. it would stop his family from coming, my family and both of your families as well. what are we and who do we want to be. >> i want to clarify refugees and asylum-seekers won't be affected by this and you always forget coming to this country is a privilege, not a right so we as americans who are already
